Dua Lipa Teases Aquatic ‘Illusion’ Music Video

No illusions here, Dua Lipa‘s new single is on the way.

The pop superstar took to Instagram on Wednesday (April 10) to share a 10-second teaser clip of the music video to accompany her upcoming track, “Illusion.” In the preview, the 28-year-old singer is seen on what appears to be a naval ship, dancing along with swimmers, posing on surfboards and more.

See the teaser here, before the full song and video arrive on Thursday (April 11).

When it drops, “Illusion” will become the third single the British artist has dropped ahead of her upcoming third studio album Radical Optimism, following “Houdini” and “Training Season.” The former debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the latter entered the chart at No. 27.

“[Releasing the album] feels good. It feels for lack of a better word — radically optimistic,” Lipa previously told Billboard of her upcoming project, before explaining the idea behind the album cover, which features the singer floating in a wide open ocean facing a shark fin. “Throughout the whole record, there’s this idea of chaos happening around and me trying to push through it in a way that feels authentic and honest to me.”

As to how she got the name of the album, Lipa attributed the phrase to a friend “A couple years ago, a friend introduced me to the term ‘radical optimism,’” she said in a statement announcing Radical Optimism back in March. “It’s a concept that resonated with me, and I became more curious as I started to play with it and weave it into my life.”

The 11-track Radical Optimism — Lipa’s first proper LP since 2020’s Future Nostalgia — arrives May 3.
